About Bats and White-Nose Syndrome

Bats and White-Nose Syndrome

Bats play an important ecological role as insect predators and pollinators. They help to control some of our most costly agricultural and forest pests. However, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologists and partners estimate that at least 5.7 million to 6.7 million bats have now died from white-nose syndrome. Join Dr. Thomas Rodhouse, ecologist for the National Park Service and courtesy faculty at Oregon State University, for a discussion of this disease, its impact and efforts to prevent its spread.

About High Desert Museum Natural History Pub

Join us for beer and history, sponsored by the the High Desert Museum, Des Chutes Historical Museum, the Oregon Encyclopedia, and McMenamins, in which you'll hear lively local and regional history while you enjoy a frosty pint or two of handcrafted ale. Food and beverage sales in Father Luke's Room help support this popular lecture series.
